Universal EV Chargers, a division of Universal Green Group, has secured nearly $10 million in government green energy grants, which it will use to help hospitality industry businesses roll out EV charging services for their customers, by defraying upfront installation costs.
Universal has also earned approved-vendor status for hotel chains including IHG, Wyndham, Marriott and Hilton.
“Hospitality businesses like hotels are excellent sites for EV charging stations because they are located where people travel, and offer multiple desirable amenities for EV drivers,” said Hemal Doshi, CEO of Universal Green Group. “We have worked with hotels extensively over the last decade installing their solar panels, and our understanding of their business models and operational needs has largely informed our strategy.”
Universal EV Chargers offers both Level 2 and DC fast chargers, all “designed from the ground up to optimize quality and cost in manufacturing, transport, testing, implementation and installation.”
Universal’s Level 2 charger has been certified by Intertek and Underwriter Laboratories.
The company offers a range of investment options for site owners, from simple purchase of the EVSE to full turnkey deals with little or no up-front expenses for qualified property owners.
“We won these green energy grants in competition with some of the largest EV charging providers in the US because of our approach to solving common problems faced by EV owners,” said Doshi. “Thanks to the grants and our wide range of financial options, including a no-cost choice for qualified partners, hotels and other businesses will be able to install and operate EV charging stations quickly and economically.”
